Our purpose is

'to help transform and improve the lives of young people who are struggling, or have struggled in life so far, whether it be academically, socially or economically. We aim to promote a sense of well being and purpose, so they feel they are better equipped to progress, move on and start to lead a fulfilling life.'

In school holiday time we run more 'fun'skills and techniques based activity sessions. Most of these are open to all young people. However, in the past we have also worked with Beds Cerebral Palsy Society, Taylor House, YMCA etc. (With activities ranging from purely fun / interest sessions to courses with small qualifications.)

The activities we run include Angling (Fishing! and bait / tackle making); Photography; Estate Maintenance / Construction sessions (Building and installing platforms and gates, creating and maintaining paths and steps, cutting back, clearing and strimming trees, bushes and vegetation etc); Forestry / Survival skills; Indoor / Outdoor cooking; Mountain Bike riding and maintenance; other sports related activities; Arts and Crafts; Pond dipping; Bird / Animal watching and related walks; Gardening on our allotment, Work experience opportunities; taking young people to Zoo's and Safari Parks; as well as working on CV's, writing application letters for jobs and college courses, interview techniques, researching job and college courses.

(We have 6 vehicles including one minibus, which enables some transport capability for wheelchair users.)

We have been able to help a lot of young people whilst we have been operating and in this academic year the vast majority of our young people have come away with at least one or more qualifications.

Preparing for Adulthood

Preparing for Adulthood - Transition (means “change”)
It is what happens when you start thinking about what you want to do when you leave school and what support you may need.
It is a time to look at what you want in life, and plan the services you may need to support you. Planning your transition starts happening when you are about 13 years old. A good transition means that you will be as independent as possible when you are an adult. It is important that you know about what will happen and how all of the different changes will affect you.

Scope

Scope exists to make this country a place where disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else. Until then, we’ll be here. We provide support, information and advice to more than a quarter of a million disabled people and their families every year. We raise awareness of the issues that matter. And with your support, we'll keep driving change across society until this country is great for everyone.
